from michigan. ms. stabenow: thank you, madam president. the presiding officer: we are in a quorum call. ms. stabenow: i would ask suspension of the quorum call. the presiding officer: without objection. ms. stabenow: thank you. madam president, i rise today to once again speak about the fact that in july -- july 25 of this year, the senate passed a middle-class tax cut bill guaranteeing that the first $250,000 of income that any american has would be exempted from any tax increase. now, we all know that the vast majority -- in fact, 98% of americans -- make less than that amount of money. so we are talking about 98% of americans receiving tax cuts under that proposal. back in july, we passed this proposal, and it is now still waiting in the house of representatives. so far the house leadership has refused to even let the bill come up for a vote, even though we all know that there are a majority of members in the house that would vote for this and guarantee that, as we go into christmas, middle-class families across america would know that they would have $2,200 in their pocket, more in
states of michigan and missouri in the procurement. and as a result of that procurement, a new manufacturer that is chosen to locate in the state of illinois, because governor quinn actually aggressively went after that manufacture before it was even known that they would be building any rail cars for this initiative, nepa located their facility in rochelle illinois and have higher 250 people and that is from nothing. we weren't competing with other states. those jobs are new jobs to the united states, new jobs to illinois. so that's cleared a success story. that facility also is making some transit cars for metro which is suburban chicago fixed rail system for commuters. so that is a big success story. and i think i talked briefly about normal illinois. my comments, normal illinois is home to illinois state university, and that in illinois is the station with the second highest ridership, second only to chicago. and that's because they have built this wonderful station to they use tiger funds to build the station. that is a station that connects the riders getting off of the t

: that from inside "the washington post." ed is on the phone from michigan. good morning to you. caller: good morning, c-span. i have listened to some of what the democrats have said. the way i look at it -- if the rich, if they are worried about 3% raise, one of the middle class and the poor or about the same raise? is it your patriotic duty to pay taxes? if the poor are concerned about their money going down, a lot of energy regulations are coming into effect that will cost electric costs to co-op which will affect the poor just as badly as it is the rich? host: mark from ohio, good morning. caller: all the power was taken from the epa and given to the nra. there is no fiscal cliff. there was another so-called fiscal cliff in 2008. give money to the billionaires and banks. when eisenhower took office, he gutted the military. taxes were 9% on corporations. 10 trillion dollars being horded. the problem lies and propaganda. 90% of all our information from the tv and the radio comes out of the state of texas and new york city. that is wall street. there is an economy based on military bases and

across areas in chicago, northern parts of the state of indiana that into michigan. on the southern end of the storm system we have showers and thunderstorms in louisiana, mississippi and tennessee. eventually both of these areas will be coming together and moving towards the northeast. i do quickly want to point out between these areas we're actually seeing freezing rain falling early this morning across places in arkansas and northern texas. please drive carefully out there. that is outside the city of memphis as well. western portions of state of tennessee dealing with possible icing on the roadways. otherwise a number of winter weather advisories issued for the state of new jersey, pennsylvania and across the mid-atlantic where we're expecting to see some accumulation of snowfall. interior sections of the northeast, you're not expecting too much snow. the storm will be quick mover. many areas will see the snow including new york city and places in upstate new york and pennsylvania of the by sunday the storm is gone leaving behind some windy conditions. here is a look at the computer
in these cases, and i think it's just bad policy. >> reporter: and in michigan this week the governor vetoed a bill that would allow teachers to carry guns. still the idea may be catching on. back in harrold, texas, parent approve. >> i'd rather have someone at the school protecting my children than to stand there and hide them in a closet and have no way to protect them from somebody that comes into school with a gun. >> reporter: superintendent won't say which teachers or how many have guns, part of the secret he says of keeping students safe. charles had lock, nbc news, harrold, texas. >>> this morning on nbc's "meet the press" the nra executive vice president wayne lapierre led the charge in defending his organization's stance on gun control in the wake of the tragedy in newtown. in response to a question about legislating against high-capacity magazines, lapierre had this to say. >> i don't believe that's going to make one difference. there are so many different ways to evade that even if you had that. you had that for ten years when dianne feinstein passed that ban in '92. it was on th
and their supporters are protesting michigan's decision yesterday to rush through right-to-work legislation. the state house and senate approved measures that will prohibit unions from forcing non-union members to pay additional fees. republicans claim that that will boost the economy and jobs. but democrats are calling it an attack on workers' rights. governor rick snyder has previously said that right-to-work is not on his agenda but he does plan on sign that next week. back on capitol hill steven spielberg is slated to attend "lincoln." poems president obama is hosting the event at the capitol visitor senator. after the screening, spielberg and louis along with 3 other actors will hold a q and a session with senators and their guests. more "bill press" is coming up after our break. see you then. i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for s
that and do it quickly. host: a few minutes left with our guest. curt in flint, michigan. caller: good morning. one quick comment. then i will hang up. criminals do not care what laws you put in, they will get the weapons, get whatever they need to get the job done. thank you. goodbye. guest: that is certainly true to the extent that that is how criminals think. this is a problem that people disagree with what the solution will be, the problem being gun violence like the shooting on friday. if we all agreed on exactly what the solution work, then congress would pass it tomorrow, but they do not agree. i think we will see a debate about the most effective solutions. do they have to do with mental health? when the ding the supply of fire arms? the combination? are there other things that can be done? -- limiting the supply of fire arms. host: this is a tweet in one to build a question from it. do you have a definition of an assault and gun rifle, and whether or not you do or not, as well could the president change the definition of assault? guest: that is a fascinating question. if you look at l
in's time has expired. >> i am pleased to yield three minutes. >> the gentleman from michigan is recognized for 3 minutes. >> this is an important moment. these bills move the nation dangerously closer to the cliff. with only 11 days before our nation will go over. they make finding common ground far more difficult, with only 11 days left to find it. these bills are not a plan. they are a ploy. they are to know where. they undermine trust so essential for agreement. we just heard it. the republicans claim letting the tax rate go up from 35 to 39.6 on income over $1 million is not a tax hike because it would happen on its own. then they say if the tax cut would go up on income below $1 million by happening on its own, it would be the biggest tax increase in history. that is inconsistent. far worse than the hypocrisy is the way they design their tax provisions. for those with incomes over $1 million, they provide a tax cut of at least $50,000. they raise only one-third of the revenue contained in the speaker's discussions in the white house and far less than proposed by the pres
of the speakers, great predecessors, tip o'neill, he was here and lit the michigan tree and he declared that it would be an emblem of peace for the nation and the world. purpose's exactly the among many that this tree rements. since 1970, every capitol christmas tree has been cut from national forests from across our great country. it is 73 feet. engel man spruce has been cut from the white river national forest in meeker, colorado. and this has been a statewide celebration when we were chosen as the state from which the tree would come this year and i'm really glad to be here with you tonight. i want to express my gratitude to the ute tribes that are represented here today. their homelands were 1,500 years, they lived in these lands. i would like to acknowledge the utes, because they are a heritage. [applause] >> i have a long speech and normally, i would shorten it because it would be cold out here. for every degree under zero, your speech has to be reduced by one minute, but we do have a wonderful warm evening in which to celebrate this very important and moving event. i want to than
. bush, debby dingle from mish michigan to talk about us. deb y the timing of the president's interview seems a bit like taunting. was that the point or something else? >> i don't think it was taunting and i think you continue to see the president throughout the day say we've do the to try to negotiate to get ourself an answer. he has worked and worked with republicans trying to find a solution. i think everybody agrees, i pray everybody agrees, democrats and republicans alike, that not solving this and doing over the fiscal cliff is not an option. that means everybody has to give. etches stating a -- he was stating a fact and reinforced all day today he's working towards finding a solution. >> brad, are the republicans having a sour grapes because they didn't take to the airwaves or do you think it was wise not it? >> i think it's wise not to. it's good faith to negotiate with your partners, so to speak, behind closed doors and come to an agreement and announce it when it's ready. the president negotiates and runs over and does sunday talk shows, something he hadn't done in three years
, of course, here are. so numbers on your screen. met with laughter by michigan mcconnell senate minority leader said i didn't take this seriously. what was your take on this? >> i think mcconnell is right. this is not a serious proposal. the republics intimated that they might be willing to put some revenue on the table. and that's when the democrats basically said okay, then we want everything. it's not unlike the used car sales men or even the new car sales men who says i think we have got a deal. let me take the sales manager. then he comes back and says after we add the undercoating and that special paint and a dealer prep package, then it's going to cost you. this look, there is an old line that every person understands, when the teenage boy says if you just let me kiss you, that's all i want and that's the game the democrats are playing. look,. >> now you are speaking my language. >> i knew that clayton you and dave would totally understand this. >> right. >> but the point is the republics are not going to fall for this and she shouldn't and they couldn't. and it's unfortunate that
and it's the first salvo, so, michigan mcconnell laughs at it and timothy geithner hands it to them. this isn't real. >> i didn't know that first was the first offer. we have been talk about this for months. why is it now, i'm sure after the election and everybody knew where both sides stood and you would think some sort of progress. >> thanksgiving congress was off and to today's point the christmas holiday coming up here, only a few weeks, the 30 day window is not a 30 day window. >> and all of the congressmen we speak to off camera, we say is there going to be a deal, probably in the last minute we'll hash something out a ridiculous charade. get it done. >> let us know. >> and this story keeps resonating. the beautiful story that the new york post captured this week after police officer who didn't know that his photo was being shot and he was giving a homeless man socks and shoes that he had bought out of his own pocket. the development. >> the n.y.p.d. officer on the screen, larry deprimmo, now the brother, a random act of kindness it wasn't something planned or thought out and
engler was doing up in michigan, what other reform-minded governors were doing across the country on health care reform, on welfare reform, the republicans, conservatives, controlled it. as i said to jim yesterday, there's been an anti-intellectual strain in this party for the past four, five, six years. it's now costing us millions of votes across the country. and millions and millions of dollars. and he seemed to get that as well. >> yeah. the good news is that the republicans have got them -- clearly have gotten the message, and they're moving faster than i ever thought they would. >> yeah. >> so i'm encouraged. >> they really are. i mean, i heard hannity right after the election started talking about immigration reform. >> immigration reform. >> krauthammer. >> you're seeing it there, on taxes, on opportunity. look, you may even see it one day on climate change. i think the debates are changing. >> this sounds so good, but then i read charles krauthammer. nothing but a power play. obama's objective in these negotiations is not economic but political. not to solve the debt cris
's no actual scoring based on, upon race. and, indeed, if they did that, they might run afoul of the michigan problem of having special goals or quotas or assigned numbers to it which creates another kind of irony. it is possible that ms. fisher might have been admitted in a summer program under which texas admits a number of people who are not admitted in the regular program. it's not clear to me, and maybe it is to anybody else, whether she actually tried to get into that program. in any event, she was not admitted there. and so one of the arguments that is being made is it's impossible to reconstruct what would have happened and that maybe this is a lawsuit which could prevent the university of texas from going forward with its program in the future. the problem from ms. fisher's perspective is she has already completed the university. this is not a class action, and she has not sought an injunction against the future use of the program pause she would have no -- because she would have no standing and not be entitled to ask for it. the only thing she is seeking at this time is monetary dam

a university of michigan graduate this way, mr. speaker, but it's going to be a big void for this house for not just all five, but especially steve latourette who has really given his heart and his soul for 18 years try to make this body and our nation a better place for our kids and our our grandkids. it really didn't matter who you were or what you were about or if you had an r or a d by your name with respect to steve. if he believed in your cause, he was your partner, and he was going to do everything within his power to make sure that cause, that issue was going to be solved. he didn't always win, but he surely went down swinging every time he took that cause up. and this place will not be as good as it has been without steve latourette, jean schmidt, steve austria, dennis kucinich and betty sutton. mr. speaker, it has been great knowing these folks. i'm pretty sure that all of them we will see again in one capacity or another. i know steve, that we will see you and jen and emma soon, and mr. speaker, with that, i think our hour's up. we have no more speakers. it's been a pleasure.
and going to miss our back and forth about the michigan wolverines. (laughter) >> you or dave always have to get a dig in. >> dave: enjoyed it, chris and thank you, we'll watch the show today. it's a good one. >> clayton: check your local listings, chris, thanks so much. coming up on the show, if you hate atm fees you're going to hate this. now you're not going to get a warning if you're getting a charge. >> juliet: we all know the fees are going to be there some way anyway. and is there a fatherhood crisis? why the number of two parent households are on decline and affect for years to come. my old friend is coming up. ♪ i will be the one who loves you till the end of time ♪ let's give thanks - for an idea. a grand idea called america. the idea that if you work hard, if you have a dream, if you work with your neighbors... you can do most anything. this led to other ideas like lerty and rock 'n' roll. to free markets, free enterprise, and free refills. it put a man on the moon and a phone in your pocket. our country's gone through a lot over the centuries and a half. but this idea isn'
